S. I. RAMSEY DIES IN CAMP.
Soi of Mr. S. 11. Ramsey, of the Trin- I
Ity-Ridge Section, Died at Camp
S. U. Ramsey, Chief Mechanic of Bat. t
dW 73rd F. A., Camp Jackson, son of r
Mr. S. H. Ramsey, of the Trinity-Ridge o
section, died In camp about two weeks I
ago and 'was buried at his former i
home at Wedgefleld, 4n Sumter Coun- I
ty. The young man was among the
brightest and most proising young
men of his community and his death
was deeply regretted by all who knew
him. That lie made an exemplary sol
dier is attested to by a letter to Mr.
Ramsey from one of the lieutenants of
his company, which follows:
Camp Jackson, S. C.,
December 19, 1918.
Dear 'Mr. Ramsey
Ii writing this letter I shall try, to'
a certain degree, to convey to you my
deepest sympathy, and that of the rest
of this Battery, his associates. in this
your hour of sorrow covering the un
timely death of your son.
Our feelings at the present- time are
especially potent, as now the great
warl 13 over and the civilized world re
joices in the victory of democracy ov
Ile twas a member of our- great army
of iIncourageient' and Enthusiasm
that has done so much to make him
and all of us better soldiers, and has
iproved to tie finest degree that real
and true Americanism, the same that
throbbed the hearts and minds of our
,forefNthers when this country was
still in its infancy, is still embodied
in the youth we offer to substantiate
her ideals and principles when some
one feels they can trample on them.
Since his enlistment in the service
of the United States Army, your son
haa displayed all the finer tralts of a
true American citizen, the kind that
commands all respect from those less
9 fortunate iwho cannot claim America
I bring this point to view to remind
y6u that you have indeed a source of
d real comfort, in the fact that you had
a son who died in the scrivec of his
country-the greatest sacrifice a man
d can offer.
Since being attached to this organ
ization, I will say with all truth, that
your son has been a most exemplary
member, and I voice the sentiment of
1 all of this lBattery when I say that his
death has caused a break in our chain
I, as his Battery Commander, an
f proud of him, he has done his dut)
St vell. As a parting request I ask tha
you think of him always as we do: at
e example to others, and a reason for thi
rest of us to at least try to be as goo(
and dutiful a son as, at the closing ul
of his world accounts, lie has prove(
d Earnestly hoping that this lettel
portrays my respects to the fullest de
gree, I am,
". Sincerely yours,
Frank T. .lurphy.

.Jacksonville, Jan. 3.-After serving
me year and several months as con
nandant of the Seventh Section, Unit

rin Franks, of Charleston, S. C., has
*ecelved orders to immediately report
Por foreign service, having- been de
alled for duty in the naval overseas
Lieutenant Franks Is well known
throughout Florida and Georgia, hav- t
ing resumed the responsibilities of of- c
flee stupceeding Lieut. J. -i. Harris, on I
August 1, 1917. During his stay in
this position he has received many of
ficial congratulations for his ability as
le has been ins-truniental in increas
lng the quota of the United States
navy during the emergeney, also as
sisting in saving the lives of men shill
wrecked at sea anl stopping thousands
of dollars' worth of liquor being ship
ped into dry -tates from Florida.
One of the first deeds accomplished
by Lieutenant Franks was the rescue
of .10 men from a buri)ng vessel at
sea. The erew of the Spanish bark
were picked up by naval boats on the
coast near Mayport.
Probably the greatost apprehension
of liquor passing from Florida to a
dry state was madeeminder the super
vision of Lieutenant Franks. At one
haul $10,000 worth of the wet goods
was captured in tug boats being car
ried to Georgia. This find was miAde
off the southern coast of Georgia, and
resitled in a rousing fight between
sailors and alleged bootleggers. It is
estimated that more than $150,000 wias
.eized by the sailors of this district
during Lieutenant Franks' regime.
In leaving Jacksonville Lieutenant
Franks carried the best wishes of a
host of friends and admirers twho
deeply regret the departure of this
